The map shows recommended bike routes and indicates what type of riding environment you can expect- a multi-use path, an on-road bike lane, a sidewalk bike route, or a shared on-road route with vehicle traffic.

Tips for Bike Commuting

2. Bring a Friend: Have someone who bike commutes from your area show you their route.

​3. Stock Your Office: Put some extra toiletries and a pack of handi-wipes in your bag or desk drawer for some quick clean up if you need it. For long rides, bad weather, or formal work environments consider bringing a change of clothes to work.
